conspired to promote the clinton campaign at the expense of the senator bernie sanders. sanders himself has long accused the party of favoring hillary clinton despite democrats claiming they were neutral during the primary season. nearly 20,000 e-mails suggest dnc officials work matters in clinton's favor. they included suggestions that his campaign was a complete mess, one exchange is between two staffers penned by dn doctor communications director , louise miranda, at the time, questioning sanders religion writing in part for kentucky and west virginia can we get someone to ask his beliefs, does he believe in god? he stated on saying he has a jewish heritage. i think i ready is an atheist. this could make several point different with my southern baptist peeps between jew and atheist. sand hours has claimed for wasserman shut to step down has said he was disappointed by wikileaks revelation but not shock. >> i told you a long time ago
that the dnc was not running a fair operation. that they were supporting secretary clinton. so, what i suggested to be true six months ago turns out, in fact, to be true. >> now dnc chair woman debbie wasserman schultz will not preside over the convention. she plans to step down when it is all over. congress woman martha fudge has been task todd preside over the dnc. she's former chair of the congressional black caucus and considered to be a rising star in the house. as far as today's events go the theme is united together putting families first. today's theme will focus on the future of american families front and center, and how we're stronger together when we build an economy that works for everyone, not just for those at the top and when everyone has a chance to live up to their god given potential. keynote speakers will be first lady michelle obama, senator bernie sander and astread
silva, who came to the u.s. at four, will share her story and keep her fight for immigrant families together. her stories mirrors that of thousands of nevada immigrants and welcome reminder of just is what at stake during this election. there will be several local speakers at the wells fargo center, during the d dnc this week. some politicians on that list pennsylvania governor tom wolf , senator bob casey, congressman brendon boyle, senator corry booker, congressman bob brady and former philadelphia police commissioner charles ramsey will be back in our city. we will plan to see several celebrities around town over the next several days as far as the star studded power goes , today, alycia keys will be performing at an invite only event, janel mo'ne will head line nancy pelosi's opening day party. a lot the to sianni a lot to sianni going on in our city on day one of the dnc. >> lauren, not just inside the wells fargo center either. protests planned all over. steve keeley is live at the
convention center f they are protesting right new they would be all wet. >> thinks the lead story in philadelphia, everybody. it is pouring outside, a lightening show, like no other , it sound like the subway is above our head. fortunately we have park under this archway at 11th street. you can see lightening and in the spotlight thank god power has not been knock out like we have seen this summer. you can see heavy downpour and lightening, that factor we are looking east from 11th street and look at the rain filling the sewer car egg all of the trash down here. we will see flooded streets, bob kelly, you like to use that word ponding. i like to use puddles, plane oldening establish to describe big puddles. greg, come out here and look down 11th street the rain was blowing sideways when lauren was talking about debbie wasserman schultz. you see more lightning south philadelphia over the wells fargo center where lauren is but it is pouring out. we have showed you police on stand by and on duty. greg will turn to the right.
we have got police, let me show you something they were a cross the street at the convention center. reason they are so close to us this rain was blowing under this arch. first they stood one door in, and then they got drenched and said we better stand in further. so some of these cops got drenched even though they were under this archway a lieutenant of police taking cover for them, this is right across the street from the convention center. so nobody will be protesting out in this chris murphy, i can tell you that. this will cause traffic trouble around and hopefully they will heed bob kelly's warning and wait until this passes or lightens up before you start driving in this stuff because visibility must be near zero going 50 miles an hour, in this drive rain. look at it blowing sideways. >> as we look at your live shot, i just asked sue serio and she says storms is moving at 35 miles per hour, heading toward new jersey right now. i guess that is good news as we look at the radar.
what a show with the lightening. we have flooding outside our studios at fourth and market. we will keep an eye on this good advice about being careful driving out there right now. those who support bernie sanders are making their voice s heard throughout philadelphia activist marched through center city yesterday supporting bernie and the earth friendly political platform. sanders delegates network a group not associated with his campaign, using the convention to make their voices heard, calling for more progressive platform at this weeks convention. group criticized hillary clinton's choice of senator tim kaine as a vice-presidential running mate >> the selection of kaine will make defeating donald trump that much more difficult this is an assault on the base, the progressive base of the democratic party that has in the numbers of 13 million voters flock to supporting bernie sanders.

heavy rain is in center city right outside convention center and still a good lightening show right above. lauren was talk about hearing. that i was over at wells fargo center, chris on friday and there are anchors on scaffolding, with the sky line in the background early in the morning because city is all lit up. i have to wonder how fast they scrambled down from two or three stories up, in the middle of the parking lot on the south end of the wells fargo. here at 11th and arch police are on stand by. they had protection too. they have dunkin' donuts where you see officers inside getting coffee getting dried off and some outside here at hilton garden inn. more officers over here. so fortunately we are under this arch at 11th street keep dry. no protest that is we know of right now. you can see convention center that is barricades out there that is not the anything you want to be standing around when you see lightening coming around you, chris. that scaffolding is probably
most dangerous spot. lauren is lucky she's in sky box inside but those poor guys and girls outside on scaffolding had to fast scramble this morning. >> i can't imagine because you mentioned fast scramble, this storm moved fast and furious, and it is crazy. now we have more rape at fourth and market again. all right, steve, please stay dry, safe and there is i look at the radar. we will keep an eye on. that. overnight shooting leaves one person dead what police believe the suspects did with the murder weapon moments before they were caught.
